RÉCIPROQUE BAY, AL. An Alabama State Representative has drafted new legislation she hopes will be a “counterbalancing measure” to the nation’s most restrictive abortion law since the 1973 landmark Roe vs. Wade  Supreme Court decision.  She says her proposed amendment would be tacked-onto Alabama’s new abortion law, and force every unwed male in the Yellowhammer State to get a vasectomy, which they can only reverse within two weeks of their wedding date.  “... if this is all about preventing unwanted pregnancies in the first place, every red blooded, ammo hoarding, God fearing patriot in this state should be lined up around the block to have their weener tubes cut,” Shaw said. “If they’re not cool with someone in the government making their reproductive decisions, they should stop sticking their noses into our uteruses.” (Reported by writer/comedian James Schlarmann.)

Based on the included quote from State Rep. Tom Thompaulsen I have to conclude that the original article is satire. but I sure wish it wasn't. Just the sort of response that this legislation deserves.

Yes, it's satire but these days it's hard to tell, isn;t it I've read a few articles about Trump that I assumed was Borowitz that turned to be the real news, LOL...and yes, I wish it was an accurate reporting of actual facts...nevertheless, it is doing it's job as a story...

What a BRILLIANT idea, support such a move 100%.

In fact it's not neccessary to get the SNIP, these days, all that's required is to have a CLIP placed to prevent the transport of sperm from the testes. If fatherhood is requested later on, said clip can be removed quiet easily and the replaced when the job is done. IMHO, quiet excellent contraceptional form. Do the World a major favor regarding the over population issue as well.

America really makes me crazier than I normally am. When abortions are made illegal, women serious about it, will find other ways that may or may not be safe. Yeah, great idea, NOT.
